THE CLASS

By Laurent Cantet

2008- France - 128min.

As part of the film series "Highlights of Cannes", the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present a screening of the film The Class.

Set wholly in a secondary school in a working-class district of Paris, where many inhabitants are foreign-born, the film follows a year in the life of a young teacher, François Marin, and the 25 teenage pupils to whom he teaches French for an hour each day. Teacher and novelist François Bégaudeau plays a version of himself as he spends a year with his racially mixed students walking the narrow line between maintaining discipline and gaining co-operation.

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, master French director Laurent Cantet's The Class is "fresh piece of humanist, realist, optimist cinema" (The Guardian).

In French with English subtitles
